The Salts Cellars are unusually modelled as two baskets with pierced sides and a wave rim. The sides display unusual arch and roundel designs and each end is engraved with a contemporary Crest on an oval disc cartouche. The two baskets are joined at the top with an entwined reeded arch handle. Each Cellar, unusually, has a clear glass liner and is marked on the base. These Salts are extremely rare and are always made by the specialist pierced worker Christopher Makemeid.
